Original Press Release
Vacuums Contaminated Liquid, Pumps Out Clean Liquid
Press release date: October 26, 2009
EXAIR's new Chip Trapper(TM) (patent pending) offers a fast, easy way to clean solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids. The Chip Trapper vacuums the coolant or liquid that is filled with debris into the included 55 gallon drum, trapping all the solids in a reusable filter bag. With a turn of the flow valve, clean liquid pumps back out. Expensive coolant that used to last only six weeks can now last six months with regular use of the Chip Trapper. It is ideal for use on machines with sumps, parts washers, tanks and storage containers.
Metal chips in a machine sump can block the intake of the coolant pump which reduces the coolant flow, causing heat-related damage to the expensive parts and tooling. Regular cleaning of the sump with a Chip Trapper eliminates this problem, the lost production, and downtime.
Chip Trapper is compressed air powered and has no motors or impellers to clog or wear out. Safe operation is assured with a built-in pressure/vacuum relief and an automatic safety shutoff valve that prevents spills or overfilling. The Chip Trapper comes complete with the stainless steel two-way pump assembly, directional flow valve, 55 gallon drum, lever lock drum lid, shutoff valve, 10' vacuum hose, 20' compressed air hose, chip wand, (2) filter bags and a drum dolly. An optional Spill Recovery Kit is available. Price is $1,275. A demonstration can be viewed at www.exair.com/ctvideo.com.
